SACRED SHAMANIC COUNSELLING
Do you ever feel there is something beyond all this?
Do you seek to 'take flight' into these other realms in a safe & securely held space?
Sacred Shamanic Counselling is an opportunity for you to gain insights into your life by 'Journeying' via the drum to these other realms.
It is a method of teaching you to safely 'Journey' into the 'other worlds' giving you the tools and autonomy to gain wisdom & insights from your own tutelary guides.
Shamanic healing is for those of us who feel they may have lost some of their power & vitality at any point in their lives. Shamanic healing can help with physical, mental or emotional pain, connect you with your true self, help you find your purpose, connect you to the earth, the spiritual world and help you walk the true path of life on this beautiful planet.
'Berkana Raido Rattles' was born in 2019. 'Berkana' is the word for Birch & 'Raido' is the word for goddess and so the 'Birch Goddess' is whom I work with to call in the spirit of these scared vessels.
As an indigenous practitioner from Ireland , I will often invoke the spirit of the ancestors, or 'Sound' & 'Matter' using the Ogham tract or words of my native tongue to add power & meaning to the rattles. I work with my clients in collaboration to create the voice on which they too will venture to the other realms.
Divination is the art of correspondence with natural wisdom, that which communicates with divinity, nature and mystery within you. Divination is accessible to all of us when we are open to receive information and trust our intuition as guide.
I have several methods for seeking answers, both are ancient and wise.
One method of vision seeking is through the wisdom of the trees using the language of the ancient 'Ogham'. Another is the '41 stone method', encompassing your ancestral lineage, the root of your issue dealing with worldly issues, spirit or soul level and also career and life journey.
WORKSHOPS & EVENTS
Pandemic & Imbolc
"I see the pandemic as having been the Imbolc of mankind- in it's belly we have been held . This dismemberment has often times been tumultuous and scary, but deeply healing. This time allowed space for me to discover a true calling to work with nature and her spirit and now I make this call to you..."
Ancestral Healing Irish pilgrimage
"Until you know
this deep secret, 'Die and become,' you will be a stranger on this dark Earth."- Goeth. It is through dieing and 'be-coming', back 'together' that we aim to begin to heal the loss of community healing in our society (within the west.). The performative element of community healing has a deep effect on our individual and collective psyche."
Land & Healing
"Returning home to Ireland this summer became a right of passage in a way, a 'second coming out' because I was coming home as my authentic 'Pagan' self. I wasn't sure how this would go down in my parents local village or at the locations we planned our healing ceremonies. Yet, for all my worries, the trip became a milestone in my life's successes and accomplishments."
"It was not entirely obvious at first what my role in Korea would be. In the months running up to the trip, I was experiencing a flurry of dreams and visions. One particular dream stood out . It involved a dream of being in a ceremony/ temple room (similar to the one below holding the 10, 000 Budda's of compassion) in Korea. In the ceiling of the temple room was a Dragon Spirit, dancing above the pilgrims heads in a figure of eight, known as the lemniscate."
"I consider Shamanic Journeying as an act of faith, illuminating inner wisdom and truths, and potentially altering consciousness. With this in mind it is essential that the phsycological implications of where this can take you are respected. Niamh had strong energetic boundaries, and was well grounded as a guide. Although I felt ‘held’, she was not needy as a healer, Her focus was entirely on me, not what she could do for me, but what I could do for myself, empowering and then supporting an exploration of what came up in the journeying. I experienced sensitive counselling around trauma and subsequently some deep soul retrieval work. The work continues energetically, from this new and enlightened place. I have the confidence to journey alone now, but still feel supported, and am so grateful that Niamh was offering shamanic practice."
